Best defensive record in Premiership, Jones back soon with Bailly to follow. Lindelof starting to put it together at last, Rojo a good backup. Forgot to mention the keeper.

Re: Season 2017/2018

I think Liverpool will breeze through tonight.

I need to read back as well, perhaps we could have a little sticker to show our allegiance.

Hope you're right, but after the 2nd half collapse at Sevilla I'll save counting the chickens until after the game

Re: Season 2017/2018

What surprised me is not how many of the English teams have gone through, it’s the failure of the likes of Dortmund, Monaco, Athletico Madrid etc. I thought that Benfica was the main threat in Uniteds group and they where dreadful.

3-0 in under 20 minutes, even Liverpool can’t blow this one.

Some of these teams have lost important players so perhaps that is the reason for their demise.

It's probably easier to have an objective opinion when you don't care what the result is
I did think we'd win (although not like that), but the Seville match had reawoken those nagging doubts.

Re: Season 2017/2018

Thought the Toon where a little unlucky tonight, good end to end game all the same. They just kept giving the ball away far too often.

Great result for the boy David at the Hammers.

Will have to make an early start tomorrow afternoon. A few inches of snow already and plenty more forecast overnight. Add that to two sets of fans and all the Christmas shoppers equals a recipe for chaos.

Re: Season 2017/2018

Don't believe it's unlucky. It's just the way we're set up combined with absolutely no desire from Benitez to change a thing. His substitutions and the timing of them are beyond just questionable now. He changed the formation after winning 4 in a row and now hasn't won in something like 6. Why would you change a winning formation and set up in the first place, then be so stubborn you refuse to change it back.

Hate to be THAT guy but it's these sort of baffling decisions and his truly awful rotation policy that has landed him the boot at a handful of his other jobs.

With it now becoming clear that Staveley and Ashley are pretty close to a deal I believe Benitez will get backed but I can see him being used as a stepping stone for the new owners to throw money at a bigger manager down the line. I think it's fair to say many managers would've been sacked at this point.

Re: Season 2017/2018

Not sure about the neutrals but I for one fed up seeing and hearing all the hype and drivel surrounding today’s Utd v City game, getting boring now.

On another note Man Uniteds FA Cup game against Derby will not be televised, apparently the first time in 58 years that a United FA Cup game will not be on TV.

So given it’s not on telly, when do they arrange to play it, at 8.00pm on a bloody Friday night.

As usual OTT hyperbole from Sky and others as usual.

A lot of supporters are getting fed up with games being put at very awkward times as the football clubs and the TV companies now seem to have carte blanche to put it on whenever they want and balls to anybody else seems to be their attitude when they are questioned about these difficult kick off times for football supporters..
